Hatchets fall to Mt. Carmel



Mt. Carmel came into the contest keying on Hatchet running back Jaden Arvin, who was averaging 144 yards on the ground coming into the contest. And the Aces shut down Arvin, who netted zero yards on six carries in the first half, which saw Mt. Carmel out gain the Hatchets 405-79  Arvin finished the contest with 23 yards rushing on 12 attempts.

Washington did sustain one drive during the first half, a 10-play, 32-yard march after the Laws’ punt return for a score. Quarterback Jake Brashear completed a pair of passes on the drive, including a nifty 16-yard strike to Austin Moody. Luke Thornton also carried four times for 15 yards on the drive, but the Hatchets were forced to punt after gaining a pair of first downs with 4:04 left in the first quarter.

Washington did have some bright spots, particularly in the second half. Brashear had his best night throwing the football of the season, completing 6-18 for 97 yards and a touchdown, a 20-yard completion on fourth down to Arvin in the third quarter. Brashear, who was also the leading Hatchet ground gainer on the night with 31 yards on seven attempts, capped off another drive late in the fourth quarter with a 20-yard touchdown run.

Brashear completed passes to five different receivers, including Moody, Thornton, Tyler Summers, Jansen Shake, and Arvin, with Shake hauling in two passes for 22 yards.

Given the score at halftime, Brashear instructed his team to work on some different aspects of the game in the second half, and he was impressed with the results.

“When it’s 48-0 at halftime, the game’s out of hand. So we talked about at halftime going out and working on the things we don’t do a whole lot off or do very well,” said Brashear. “We threw the ball quite a bit the second half, and I thought Jake threw some good balls, and we ran some pretty good routes in the second half.”
